If your device only shows a cross after you turn it on, the TomTom application is not installed or cannot be found.

I have formated my tomtom one and know it will not start with out showing a flashing disk and a x


Probably the last update was not applied correctly or it was corrupted.
Please, try this:
1) Place the GPS on the cradle connected to the computer and start TomTom Home.
2) Turn the GPS on and connect it to the computer.
3) Erase the downloaded software (using the "remove items" from the TomTom home software)
4) Choose "disconenct device" from the drop down menu of TomTom2_bing.gif Home
after the GPS powers down and restarts, press the RESET button on the button (keep it pressed for 7 seconds)
5) Repeat setps 1-2 from above. When TomTom Home detects your GPS, it will offer to update it. If it doesn't, choose "update device" from the TomTom Home buttons

Please, report back if you need further assistance

Map updates. The directions are often incorrect. Device voice and map show me I am at destination then changes to show it is actually a half mile or more down the road. Needs corrections!!!!!!!!! Thanks!


There ar frequent minor map corrections accessible through MapShare. You configure your GPS to accept these corrections. You can selected to accept ALL, or from TRUSTED sources, or ONLY corrections verified by TomTom.
Connect the unit to the computer and download the MapShare corrections. If your map is too old, maybe it is time to get the latest one.

If you have started using your unit not long ago (less than 30 days) you may have the right to a free update. TomTom offers the 30 day latest map guarantee.

Connect the unit to a computer where you installed the tomtom HOME application. Upon registration, HOME will proceed to update your GPS.

My TomTom One 3Rd edition is connected to my computer, When I turn it on it tells me to wait. when the hour glass runs down the screen that comes up does not respond to tapping to get the main menue up....


Get the latest version of TOMTOM HOME
Install it and run the program.

Now with your GPS tunred off connect it to your computer via a short USB lead.

Now switch on the GPS and clikc yes when t asks if you want to connect to a computer.

TTH will now start up and from there you can update the tomtom itself.

Can't get gps to connect to computer and bring up tomtom home


All the downloads are done from the computer end.

The Tom Tom unit just sits there with a fixed screen with no instructions or menu on it.

Cannot make TomTom HOME recognize my device


Sounds like you are trying to install tt home from your tt device. Go to the tt website and download from there.

Frozen tomtom


You can get your original splash scren from here. You can also download free splash screens created by user through TomTom HOME.

To correct your device, try:

1. Hit the reset button on the back of the device - inside the serial connector.
2. Make sure the device is off and connect it to your computer via USB dock and connect the charging cable (green light should be on)
3. Hold down the power button until the device restarts.
4. The device should automatically connect to your computer.
5. Run TomTom HOME and check for any updates.
6. If there is no new application, try: www.tomtom.com/9091 <-- that will show you how to remove and then reinstall the application.

Tomtom keeps rebooting by itself soon after being switched on


Here is a solution that worked in my case (constant reboots after voice select)
  1. Plug your tomtom into your PC.
  2. Run TomTom Home
  3. Select the option to run your TomTom through your PC (TT Home)
  4. You should be greated with the select language screen
  5. Then simply select language etc.
  6. When you get to the voice selection: select a voice (here TTHome should freeze) <- also strangely enough notice the cancel button doesn't on the screen (as it does when doing this on the device)
  7. Don't panic TT Home should start working again in a few seconds
  8. Disconnect your TomTom and that should have solved the problem, the normal map screen should show up upon starting up your TomTom
This solved the issue for me, hope it does for you good luck!

Seeking the repair of my tomtom Go 910


One suggestion is to plug the Tom Tom using the temporary power cord to you home circuit (not the power source from the car). That worked for me. Sometime the Tom Tom shuts down when left in the hot car requiring a reset. Then the best way is to plug in at home and restart. Try it, otherwise I can't help.

Please tell give me detailed instrucions on how to upgrade my Tomtom Navigation system. I bought it on the 7yh April 2007.


Ok, here we go:
1: Do a completly backup via win explorer or similar.
Copy entire content of unit to a folder on your computer.
Remember to set win explorer to show system/hidden files.
2: Make an account here for free:
http://www.tomtom.com/myTomTom/myProfile/index.php
3: Download and install TomTom Home:
http://www.tomtom.com/support/support.php?ID=3&Language=4
4: Connect unit to PC, TT Home starts up. If TT Home doesn't start, start it up manually.
5: When unit tells you to, tap Connect to computer
6: Log on with info from account creation, step 2.
7: Push Update my device from within TT Home.
8: DO NOT disconnect the unit while updating.

When updating is finished, disconnect unit.
The unit will then reboot, and you are done...

Tips:
You can get one free map update if a new map is avaible within 30 days from when you first started to use the unit. This is done through TT Home...

Good luck.
